    Default Tension and Relief

    Last night on classical radio the Overture to The Flying Dutchman was presented :

    very scary music ... calm seas ... very scary music ... calm seas ... very scary music ... After while
    I lost count and rather drifted off , and I don't remember what happened next . If I fell asleep I believe dreaming along was all pleasant enough there-after .

    How can I be mistaken that tension/relief is theoretically fundamental to the music you love ?

    How to tell, with such locutions, whether you can or cannot?

    Well, Tubby, how CAN you be mistaken that tension/relief is theoretically fundamental to the music I love? If anyone has an answer, it can only be you.

    I've recently been attending to Bach : Mass in B minor . The Agnus Dei in particular , as it touched my
    my heart with a darling respite from busy-ness . The recording I heard was even less busy than the score
    The accompaniment to the alto was just piano , and low down ; an easy , even rhythm of simple intervals .

    I do not assume what you love , rather that you do love - if I may assume something .

    Tension released ?

    A safe assumption. Released.

    Music Therapy professionals will employ theories of Tension/Relief . Relief is their intention . Their worst
    assumption is that you are tense and will only provide non-tense stimulation . Elevator music does this also .
    And it can make ducks in an elevator disgusted and quacking . They have an active impulse to balance the
    environment with protest . Ducks , though , will not sing it bel canto . They are depressed .
